Russia's Foreign Ministry says the arrest of 10 alleged Russian spies in the United States is throwback to Cold War.
The ministry said in a statement Tuesday the U.S. actions are unfounded and pursued "unseemly" goals. It voiced regret that the arrests came even though President Barack Obama has moved to "reset" U.S. relations wth Russia.
The FBI has arrested 10 people who allegedly spied for Russia for up to a decade — posing as civilians while trying to infiltrate U.S. policymaking circles. An 11th defendant — a man accused of delivering money to the agents — remains at large.
